Amir speaks out about his reason to quit Pakistan
Amir stated that retiring from Pakistan was not an easy decision for him. He further added that if he brings out the real reason behind his call then it can become very ugly for the PCB. He also said that he hopes that the youngsters of Pakistan don’t face what he has gone through.
“Retiring from playing for your beloved country isn’t an easy step to take. I thought a lot about this decision, I spoke to those close to me, and only then did I reach this decision. If I go into all of the details and re-open all those chapters then it will get very ugly. I hope that our players, especially the youngsters in the future don’t have to face what I had to face as I don’t want our younger players to get disheartened and have to sacrifice their careers as I did,” said Amir as quoted by News 18.
“What matters most to me is respect and I felt that I wasn’t getting the respect I deserved and that’s why I took the decision to retire. The people in charge of Pakistan cricket have their job to do, they have their responsibilities and have their decisions to make, and I have my career to continue and look forward to, so we all should move on, as right now I am happy with my life,” he added.
